We recently puchased an older Victorian home in the Western suburbs of Philadephia and have 3 children under the age of 5. We knew that the home needed a significant amount of babyproofing work to get us comfortable...multiple stairway gates, staircase baluster protection and safety, securing non-working fireplaces, latches, locks and protection for multiple doors, windows, cabinets and drawers. I met with the 3 babyproofing companies in the vicinity that I found on Angie's List and found Joe to be head and shoulders above the other two. After having met all 3 of the companies, there is clearly a consistent approach to some of the babyproofing basics (latching and locking cabinets, drawers, etc...) Hourly labor rates, recommended manufacturers and products (e.g. gates) all seemed to be somewhat comparable as well. I am sure the other 2 providers are very capable. The difference to me was that Joe listened and came up with solutions. Where I needed real help was getting creative with an issue like protecting the older, ornamental balusters on our main staircase while giving us peace of mind that the kids could not do any real damage to the staircase or themselves and without distracting too much from the appearance. Joe came up with a customized plexiglass solution (protects on the stairs as well as a flexible part that goes around the curves) below the banister that gets raves from everyone that sees it...we stopped even noticing it after a few days. I asked the other 2 babyproofers to look at the staircase as well. The first one (who charged me a nominal fee to do a walk through of the home as well) had no ideas for me on how to protect the staircase...none...even after I had outlined that as my number one issue when we set up the walk through. The other had an idea that was going to cost me significantly more while being unsightly and impractical. For the rest of the project, Joe listened to what my wife and I wanted (we are not DIY people) and came up with several other suggestions that we think saved us time and money as well. We spent a significant amount of money having him in several times as we expanded the original scope of the project (e.g. I did not originally think I would want as many installed gates as we wound up getting) but we are very happy with the results. There were a couple of things that need to be adusted / re-done and he came back to take care of those issues in a timely manner as well. I would strongly recommend that anyone considering a babyproofing project contact Joe to have him do a walk through and get his thoughts. We have also had him perform handyman services for us on several occasions. He shows up on time (and has worked on several weekend days), is courteous (i.e. shoe covers) and trustworthy (have had him in our house 5-6 times in total). I think his prices are fair and I would recommend that you come up with a detailed plan for him to follow so there are no surprises and no time is wasted but I have no real complaints.
